A Mighty Angry Australian Fast Food Bunfight!

HUNGRY JACK'S vs McDONALD'S

Just when everyone has had a total gutful of McDonald's Mighty Angus Burgers, Hungry Jack's has weighed into the Australian beef bunfight with its own Angry Angus Burger.

No one in Australia could tell the difference between one of McDonald's traditional fatty patties or their overpriced, not-so-fancy Angus beef patties which have been raking in untold profits for the company's headquarters in the United States.

Only a dill - or Clive Palmer with money to burn - would fork out for a McDonald's Mighty Angus Mighty Ordinary Burger.

The sooner Australian punters boycott these slick and not-so-special promotions the better.

But not to be outdone by Maccas, Hungry Jack's has now launched its very own Angry Angus Burger.

But the Angry Angus also fails the taste test with the meat patty being totally indistinguishable from Hungry Jack's normal fatty fare.

Too little, too late by HJs.
But there is one other problem for the marketing gurus at Hungry Jack's.

The average customer would feel like a complete dill ordering an "Angry Angus".

Whichever fresh-faced marketing graduate came up with such an idiotic name should be given the Royal Order of the Boot by Hungry Jack's.

What will their overcharging marketeers think of next:

- Demented Fish and Chips

- Pathetic Pepperoni Pizza; or what about

- Maniac Meat Pie.

The sooner the Mighty Angus and Angry Angus hit the dustbins of disgust the better.

Give me a Cheeseburger or Aussie Burger any day.

On second thoughts, I'll give both of them a big miss cos I'm Mighty Angry with all this crap.

PS - Today, I heard one poor bugger at Hungry Jacks ordering an Angry Anus. I suppose that's a bit better than ordering a Mighty Anus from McDonald's!

Tasmanian Police raise the spectre of Joh's Gestapo in Queensland

82 year old Peter Cundall
arrested by Tasmanian
Police for exercising his
democratic rights


The heavy handed, authoritarian arrest in Hobart of Australia's most-beloved television gardening commentator Peter Cundall shows the depths to which the Tasmanian Police have sunk in the name of democracy.

82 year old Peter Cundall was taking part in a peaceful, anti-pulp mill environmental protest when he was given a direction to move on outside Parliament House - a worldwide police tactic used to quash legitimate dissent.

Within seconds, police pounced and arrested the quietly spoken octogenarian, hauling him off like a common criminal.

Old Joh Bjelke-Petersen -the eccentric anti-democratic, anti-civil libertarian Premier of Queensland from 1968 - 1988 - would have been rattling in his grave with excitement over Peter Cundall's summary arrest.
The cop involved in yesterday's incident -which has made headlines across the nation - should be quietly shipped off to Port Arthur or King Island for a few months to contemplate his navel and to consider whether or not his actions were truly necessary to preserve democracy and public safety in the Apple Isle.

What the cop did was probably "legal" but was it a sensible and appropriate exercise of a police officer's extensive powers in the circumstances?

The Tasmanian Government should erect signs outside the Hobart Airport reading:

"Welcome to Tasmania - where dissent is quashed and old folk are sent to the slammer before they die".

Do you have a GPS or Mobile Phone?

THIS WARNING HAS JUST BEEN RECEIVED FROM THE UNITED STATES:

A couple of weeks ago a friend told me that someone she knew had their car broken into while they were at a football game.

Their car was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans.

Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had been prominently mounted on the dashboard.

When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had been stolen.

The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house.

They then used the garage remote control to open the garage door and gain entry to the house.

The thieves knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what time the game was scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they had to clean out the house.

It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents.

Something to consider if you have a GPS - don't put your home address in it.

Put a nearby address (like a store or gas station) so you can still find your way home if you need to, but no one else would know where you live if your GPS were stolen.   

MOBILE PHONES

I never thought of this.......

This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names on her mobile phone after her handbag was stolen.

Her handbag, which contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet etc was stolen.

20 minutes later when she called her hubby, from a pay phone telling him what had happened, hubby says 'I received your text asking about our Pin number and I've replied a little while ago.

'When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn.

The thief had actually used the stolen cell phone to text 'hubby' in the contact list and got hold of the pin number.

Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.

Moral of the lesson:

Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list.

Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, Sweetheart, Dad,Mom, etc....

And very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked through texts, CONFIRM by calling back.

Also, when you're being text by friends or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the message came from them.

If you don't reach them, be very careful about going places to meet 'family and friends' who text you.

*PLEASE PASS THIS ON*

I never thought about the above!

As of now, I no longer have 'home' listed on my cell phone.

bb's cafe Grand Plaza Browns Plains is superb!

Imagine sitting next to bb's cafe at the Grand Plaza at Browns Plains sending out a few email replies on your trusty Blackberry, when one of the young bb's staff comes over and asks: "Are you the Prime Minister or something?"

"Just an Ipswich Councillor," I replied as she returned to her boss exclaiming: "Yes, you were right!".

Then followed a complimentary cappuccino as I was treated like royalty for a few minutes of my life.

Well done, bb's cafe.

Great service, great coffee, all with a friendly smile.

You really made my day!

I'll be back.

I hope Kevin Rudd calls in and says hello one day.
